COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep and complex – for big and relaxing moments by the fire.

Dark-ruby colored wheat doppelbock with a creamy fine head. Strong notes of ripe bananas, raisins and plums meet liquorice and roasty aromes. Full-bodied and warming, with a well-balanced and smooth finish. The ideal companion for hearty roast meat, venison and also fruity chocolate desserts, “Kaiserschmarrn” (pancakes), “Elisenlebkuchen” (christmas cookies) or blue cheese.

nick76 (4314) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2006 Its not as good as I had expected, and hard to rate because it has some unusual qualities. Aroma is strong and smells like root beer and licorice. Nice reddish brown color and decent head. Taste is sweet, spicy and complex but not as good as I had hoped for. I detect some raisins and licorice, vanilla and cloves. Which you might think would be reminiscent of a Christmas beer but in this case the combination does not work very well. Also too much alcohol taste. Very much a niche beer. Aftertaste is fruity and warm.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - APR 12, 2005
500ml bottle. Served in a NB worthy glass at 41.3°. Pours a reddish brown color with a small "hazy" head that vanished quickly the first time, the second time I was roughing the beer in the cup and it gave me a bubbly little head that dies quickly, too. The aromas are bananas foster, brown sugar, prunes, some spice, and some cleaness (avoids the malt from getting too malty and cloying) coming from hops?, aclohol?, I don’t know, but it is appreciated. This has the nice flavor profile, like the eisbock, but lacks it’s scorting alcohol heat. Nice body, real tasty.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - APR 12, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2006 Bottled, poured out into an Aventinus glass. Pours a dark healthy brown. Smell is of fruit and wheat. Taste is citrussy with some lemony bite. An excellent beer.

2001 bottle: Smells lightly sour with some underlying nuttiness. Tastes of slight alcohol, but the flavors of the fruit and nuts have blended beautifully.

Dorqui (2144) - Brescia, ITALY - APR 12, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2005 Creamy and adherent foam, good persistence. Interesting color, darker than a dunkel weizen. Darkest brown, fizzy and lightly dense. Rich and spiced scent. Toasted and lightly bitter. Long and pleasant finish. Remarkable alcoholic tenor, much balanced one.

Arayaga2 (1905) - portland, Oregon, USA - APR 3, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2006 Spicy, dark and actively fizzy, this product is smooth and sweet without offending on any front. ($4/22oz)

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - APR 3, 2005
UPDATED: APR 4, 2010 Pictureqsue clear brown beer, with golden fringes. Quickly fading bubbly white head. Strong wheaty fruit notes in the aroma. Very dominating aroma. Very crisp sugary wheat. Good presence of malt, backed by a banana tone, complexed a little with light berry. An extremely crisp refreshing beer. Leaves a pleasent smack of caramel behind.

DerWeg (1562) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2006 50cl bottle, just cool, tumbler. Pours a deep fuzzy mahogany with an amazingly active, noisy and abundant head, which subsides because my glass may be of questionable cleanliness. How many interesting interchanges of malts and yeast are manifested, all these fruits and a tinge of citrus. Clovey and banana evocations do not drown out the bockish balanced malty sweetness. Holy shit it’s eight percent ABV, a bit noticeable and drying on the tongue but than’s okay. - if this were Belgian would we rate it in the hundredth percentile, ha ha... . Excellent, thank you Germany, I’ll be back for more.

R.I.P. Dortmunder 2005, I tip out some of this amazing elixir to your memory... Prost!
